(In case any concerts have changed dates/ changed venues/ been cancelled or I've made a typo, you'd be wise to check out the venue websites before heading out the door)

The Low Anthem return to the UK this week with 3 concerts in the capital including one free show for the "I'm not so sure about them yetters" at Rough Trade East on Thursday. I'm very sure about how good they are and would recommend getting yourself to at least one of these concerts while they're over here.

Portland's finest The Thermals are playing Cargo tomorrow (23rd). Here's the video for 'No Culture Icons'. I really like this song, reminds me of being younger and stupid, my husband thinks it's awful, I think he's wrong and sooo unfair!

On a totally different note, here are a couple of websites that have been making me chuckle:
